Read by Lynn Chen.
Crazy rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.

All of Asia's so-called worthies are descending upon Singapore for the wedding of the year, if not the century, in this over-the-top portrait of the ultrarich and their bizarre spending and living habits. Listeners will meet dogs named Astor, Vanderbilt, and Trump and a group of women who eat lavishly and attempt to outdo one another's clothing and jewelry as they meet for Bible study! The name-dropping is shameless as is the outrageously shallow behavior. There are multiple characters and incidents, but Kwan keeps the story flowing beautifully. Flora, fauna, and food descriptions deliver a shot of reality. The book is delightful and hilarious; narrator Lynn Chen makes listeners feel as though they are being told this fantastic story by an old and trusted friend. VERDICT Those who enjoy offbeat humor or exotic settings will love.âSusan G. Baird, formerly with Oak Lawn P.L., IL[Page 47]. (c) Copyright 2013.
